Abstract

The work that used to be done here was outsourced long ago, and only since Donald Trump's election has there been reason to hope that might change. For decades, distant managers have called the shots. Consultants made promises about new technology. Local conflicts were too costly. Design could be done better, faster, slicker, far away.
